April's Theme: A-paw-calypse!
For April, Aaron and Pete are going to be taking up arms with the animals and rising pup against their oppressors!
The theme of the month is not just "when animals attack." The theme of the month is intelligent animals suffering oppression, and attempting an overthrow of their vicious human oppressors.
Our first film is Air Bud. Please, no questions.
Our next film is Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, the direct sequel to Escape from the Planet of the Apes and about what happens to drive the apes to finally overthrow the humans.
After that, we're going to be tackling a different kind of oppression: scientific research on animals. We're going to be discussion both The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996) and the wild making-of documentary Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau.
Then, we close out the month with a sort of art-house, adult take on Air Bud and other "kids bond with a pet" films: White God.
We hope you'll join us for the revolution!
